The Heart of a Defiled Land
The wealthiest of the Seven Cities, Balic is a mercantile power known for its democratic systems, although Dictator Andropinis is the true authority in the city-state. Most of the great merchant houses of the Tyr Region call Balic home.
It is located on the shores of the Estuary of the Forked Tongue, on the Balican Peninsula. It has a natural harbor surrounding a bay of silt, which contains a great fleet of silt skimmers. These skimmers often make their way to northwest up the estuary to trade at Skalin’s Rib.
Population: Roughly 24,000 people live in Balic, with more in the nearby countryside. About half the population is human. Dwarves, muls, elves, and half-elves are present in large numbers. Balic is also home to small numbers of minotaurs and half-giants.
